Celtic mistreated me, says Gaba

Malawian star Gabadinhi Mhango has said South African top league side Bloemfontein Celtic mistreated him after sustaining an injury.

Gaba:  I was ill treated

Gaba: I was frustrated

Mhango, who has left Celtic controversially for another top league outfit Bidvest University, claimed his salary was cut while recuperating the injury.

He also said after getting back on his feet Celtic were not cooperative on the renewal of his contract which made him to fear for his future as the transfer window period draws to a close.

“I was committed to Celtic but there were a lot of things which have been happening. For example the team had no regard for my welfare as they reduced my salary during the time of my injury,” Mhango said.

“I was also frustrated to see that they were dilly-dallying to come in the open to indicate whether they will offer me a contract or not,” he said.

He said while he was facing a gloomy future at Celtic a window of opportunity opened to join Bidvest University in June as he entered a pre-contract agreement.

He emphasised that he had no intention to leave his compatriot team manager John Maduka in that fashion.

“It’s sad that this is the way I have parted ways with the Celtic. I enjoyed my time,” he said, sounding emotional.

But the former Bullets FC prolific striker ruled out a move back home as he awaits his new lease of life at Bidvests to link up with compatriots Atusaye Nyondo, Robin Ngalande and Gerald Phiri Jr.

He said his manager was looking for club to enable him play in South Africa.

“My manager is working hard for me to get a club right here in South Africa. I cannot come home because I am optimistic,” he said.

Gabadinho joined Celtic in a controversial move as he joined the team as a free agent barely a few days after terminating his contract.

Education and Enlightenment are two different things and most of our sports men and women don’t have either. They don’t read the small letters in the contract which can be summed up as ‘terms and conditions’ apply. It is a big reflection of the low information literacy levels of our country. This is the reason why some of our previous leaders rushed to sign up a SADCC agreement paper that indicated that if two countries share a lake or river in their boundaries they shall benefit from it in equal terms whether it be recreation or mining (paraphrased).
